The No-State “Solution”: A limited autonomy for Palestinians is the maximum Israelis would agree to

NAZARETH, (PIC)– According to a report published by the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Institute, the 9 months allocated for negotiations between Israeli authorities and the Palestinian Authority under the U.S. auspices to achieve a peace agreement has a slight possibility of success.

Researcher at the Israeli Institute for National Security Studies Udi Dekel believes that only the idea of an interim settlement with the Palestinians is the most applicable “because the differences in core subjects between Israelis and Palestinians have widened.”

He suggests examining the possibility of an interim settlement “because we must decide to change reality on stages. We are interested in strategic planning, because the basis is to keep Israel as a Jewish state, and achieve the two-state solution. We are trying for 20 years to reach a settlement, but we did not succeed.”

Dekel stresses that there will not be evacuation of the settlements, and that the Jordan Valley will be under the Israeli control. “We will not open the borders, and we will prevent entry of means of combat”, he also says.

For his part, the General Oded Tira considers that the political and security data do not support reaching an agreement with Abbas and his team.

He says “Mahmoud Abbas is not interested in agreement. In case a deal is reached the Israeli army will withdraw from the West Bank, which means that Abbas will lose power, either through the constitutional elections, or by the military force of Hamas.”

He adds that Israel is also not interested in agreement, because it knows that Abbas and Fatah do not represent the Palestinians even in the West Bank.

Tira points out that “an agreement will be considered as an Israeli folly, and will actually lead to the control of Hamas in the West Bank, which would turn the Tel Aviv and the coast to areas of confrontations like the cities near Gaza.”

For their part, Israeli security sources report that if Abbas decides to respect the agreement with the occupation he will be inviting his overthrow in a short time, but if he decides not to respect the deal, under pressure from Hamas and the Palestinian community, that will result in the re-occupation of the West Bank and may lead to his resignation.

For his part, Likud MK Ofir Akunis considers that Netanyahu will face a very strong opposition from the right wing, in case of progress in the negotiations with the Palestinians.

He reiterated that “Israel cannot withdraw from the borders of 1967, because this means waiving the Latrun area and parts of the Jordan Valley, and dismantling the settlements of Ma’ale Adumim, Har Homa and Ramot. Therefore, I do not agree to the establishment of a Palestinian state, yet I’m ready to talk about a long-term agreement that gives the Palestinians autonomy, and ability to manage their own affairs.”

For his part, the racist Avigdor Lieberman, head of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee in the Knesset, stressed on his persistent opposition to the idea of ​​any settlement.

He added he does not believe in the possibility of reaching an agreement with the Palestinians, and called on the international community “to stop interfering in our conflict with the Palestinians”, he said.
